I'm making my way through Home Cheese Making, and encountered this lovely quote:
A small garden, figs, a little cheese, and, along with this, three or four good friends -- such was luxury to Epicurus.
-- Friedrich Nietzsche
I wholeheartedly agree.
Yeah, Nietzsche was an unapologetic misogynist (My personal favorite? Woman is not yet capable of friendship: women are still cats and birds. Or, at best, cows -- Thus Spoke Zarathustra).
But, ignoring that fault, dude was a fairly decent judge of quality when he focused on males.
